Pets Named After Famous...Racetracks? Part 69: JP The Dog

JP The Dog, Dreaming Away.
Travis Richards of Pace, Florida sent in these photos, with a note:

"I know this is a bit different but we have a rescue dog that kinda fits the bill. We got 'JP' from the Jennings GP lunch guy (Dennis) about two years ago. He had found a small litter of puppies out in a barn somewhere that needed adoption right away. My then-six-year-old fell in love with JP over the weekend we were there and by Sunday we had ourselves a new puppy!

"JP stands for Jennings Puppy. He was named by his owner, Brogan Richards (son of Travis and Carol Richards).

"JP sleeps this way half the time--dreaming of T3 at Jennings no doubt!"
